Apple is rapid-fire opening its local stores these days. Exactly a month after the Upper East Side's store debut comes the tech giant's first store in Queens' grand opening on Saturday, July 11th in Elmhurst's Queens Center Mall.
It's reportedly huge—their largest store within a New York mall—and with plenty of space for demonstrations of the Apple Watch, it might even be a bigger moneymaker than the Fifth Avenue store. That store, however, is getting set to compete with a renovation that'll temporarily relocate them next door to FAO Schwarz.
